In what seems to be a recurring theme, police officials have issued an arrest warrant for former NFL player, Antonio Brown.
According to TMZ Sports, police officers in Florida have been instructed to arrest Brown after he was accused of missing another child support payment. On Aug. 9, a Miami-Dade County judge ruled that Brown missed a child support payment of $15,000 that was supposed to be paid to the mother of his children, Wiltrice Jackson.
Miami-Dade County court documents reveal that Brown can avoid being arrested and charged if he pays the amount owed plus another $5,000 in attorney fees. Earlier this year in April, an arrest warrant was issued for the same reason when the former football player did not make a payment of $30,000 to Jackson. He was also given the option to pay up or risk arrest. He paid the amount owed and avoided going to jail.The two parents share a daughter, 15-year-old Antanyiah.
Brown has had an eventful post-NFL career. In June, after Brown refused to pay the National Arena League the expected 1/7 of the football league’s operating budget, it was unanimously agreed by the league’s board of owners to terminate the membership agreement of the Albany Empire. Therefore, leaving the players and staff without access to play in the league and without employment.
The Times-Union reported that less than a week after his team was kicked out of the league, staff members and players of the Empire team stated its intention to file a class-action lawsuit against Brown, according to Empire’s head coach Moe Leggett.
Late last year, according to The Associated Press, after an arrest warrant was issued for Brown, police officials decided that there would be no charges filed against him after an alleged domestic incident involving the mother of his children in Florida. Prosecutors said that after investigators reviewed evidence related to the case, they decided that the misdemeanor battery charges did not apply to Brown.
